Track Of The Moon Beast (1976)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Professor "Johnny Longbow" Salina, a man who really knows his stews, introduces Paul Carlson to the practical-joking Kathy Nolan. Paul and Kathy seem to hit it off rather well but, during a meteor storm, a meteorite fragment strikes Paul, burying itself deep in his skull, which has the unpleasant side-effect of causing Paul to mutate into a giant reptilian monster at night and go on murderous rampages. It turns out that this sort of thing has happened before, when Professor Salina rediscovers ancient Native American paintings detailing a similar event many centuries ago. Kathy, however, still loves Paul, and tries to save him.

- Janet Price: This is a great stew, what's in it? Johnny Longbow: Lots of things. Chicken. Corn. Green peppers. Chili. [sigh] Johnny Longbow: Onions... well, it's an old recipe around here.
Johnny Longbow: I don't really know, My guess is that there is some unusual element in this fragment that synchronizes with that larger mass over there and it produces some kind of energy reaction!
Johnny Longbow: I wish I was kidding Mac, I'm not! Now there is an answer and I think I know what it is and it makes me sick to think about it!
[looks at the glowing moon rock] Kathy Nolan: Moon rocks? Oh, wow!
Kathy Nolan: But you’re going to kill him with a bow and arrow? Johnny Longbow: Not with just any old bow and arrow but with this! [shows a bow with a asteroid]
- The film was shot in 1972 but it took four years before it was released due to difficulties finding a distributor.
